Officials at the U.S. Attorney's Office told 5 News that a former Bridgeport Doctor has been sentenced to eight years and three months in prison.
59-year-old Dr. Allen Saoud was convicted last year on 13 counts of health care fraud and nine more counts on five other charges. Saoud will have to pay $2.5 million dollars in fines and a forfeiture of more than one million dollars.
Once he's released he will be under federal supervision for three years. Saoud will report to the Morgantown Prison Camp in may to start his sentence.
